Hello everyone! Happy June. How quick is this year going?!
And another fashion week already. This time it’s the men’s turn and I was so excited to be writing about it for the first time with Noctis Magazine! This season saw the addition of another day, turning it into a 4 day extravaganza showcasing the best in all of menswear!
I feel honoured to be working with Primarkfor this season to help spread the word about their menswear collections – especially their Instagram account dedicated to the mens fashion: @Primark.man. #PrimarkSpring15
I got challenged by House of Fraser to look through the past fashions of Awards Shows and create my own lookbook for an outfit worthy of the red carpet.
The department store teams up with the BAFTAseach year to show that British men have what it takes to shine when in the spotlight.
Here’s some of the inspiration I took from previous years.
My three outfits got more casual as I went along because I wanted to show that a blazer doesn’t have to be worn with a shirt and suit trousers to work.
My first look does pair the blazer with a shirt and formal trousers to create the ultimate sophisticated outfit that could be worn anywhere – especially worthy for any of the red carpet events.
My second look comprises of wearing the blazer with a jumper and skinny black jeans. Wearing a jumper can still be considered to be smart and going for the right colour really helps – I went for a deep red as it’s bold and formal. And there’s nothing wrong with skinny black jeans, they’re definitely something that every man should have in his wardrobe as they can dress up or dress down an outfit.
My third, and most casual look, consists of a floral t-shirt, jeans and trainers. I know this might not be suitable for the red carpet, but for everyday it can be perfect. Floral for spring (duh), comfortable jeans and appropriate trainers make for the best casual look that is completed by the blazer.
Let me know what you think and feel free to comment how you’d style the blazer!

What do you think of when someone mentions Savile Row?
If it’s suits and excellent tailoring then that’s exactly what we wanted to focus on for this shoot.
Myself and a couple of other top male bloggers (check their links below) got together to shoot a few of our favourite looks from the tailoring world to bring you this awesome lookbook, showcasing different styles from a variety of places.
My suit is from Burton and it’s beautiful. I opted for a high street brand to show that it doesn’t cost a fortune to look nice – there are options at a fraction of the price of luxury that still allow you to look dapper. I was a bit out of my depth wearing a three piece suit but it was totally different. I love trying new things, getting myself out of my comfort zone and I’m glad I did. The three handsome guys I had the pleasure of shooting with made it all worth it.
Let us know your thoughts on our looks and give the other guys a follow.
As some of you may know, I attended London Fashion Week working as a writer for Noctis Magazine (check out my work on their website). This was such an amazing time for me, it felt awesome to be able to write, get my work published and be immersed in the atmosphere of LFW – something which I’ve dreamt of for years.
So now I’m back to everyday life and normality. *sigh*
But all is well and I have another Outfit post to share, with a great accessory addition to my outfit.
This bracelet, from Anchor and Crew, is the perfect accompaniment to any outfit – especially in the summer.
They offers a great range of bracelets that incorporates rope and chains to reflect the ideology of the brand.
I know it’s moving onto warmer weather and I should be transitioning into t-shirts and shorts, but there’s still a little nip in the air – hence why I haven’t paired this bracelet with a beach outfit.
I went for the turtle because, c’mon, you can’t go wrong with a turtle neck!
I covered myself up with my leather jacket because it pretty much goes with every outfit. It can also be worn in the summer as it isn’t too thick – I’m looking forward to wearing it out and about in London this summer and sharing with you guys!
And these jeans. For some reason, they are my new thing. I’ve always believed that you can’t go wrong with a good pair of blue jeans, even for a guy!
This shoot was crazy fun! I ventured into the woods and near the lake on my University Campus and chose this spot. I think it’s beautiful.
My new love for overcoats has been fulfilled with this beautiful one from Primark and I literally haven’t taken it off since I bought it. It’s warm, cosy and goes with pretty much every outfit (so look out for more from this little number!)
The tee is from ASOSand it’s knitted – that’s right, I said it’s bloody knitted. And it’s incredibly snug. It feels like you’re wearing a t shirt underneath a jumper it’s that warm, even I was surprised. I love the blue crosses because it adds a little bit of colour to my outfit.
I seem to be edging towards wearing a lot of black lately. I even bought a beautiful leather jacket last week (coming soon!) so I’m completely addicted. The bag saved me and added a little bit more colour to the outfit. It’s from Spiral UK.
The watch is one of the accessories that I knew I needed to pair with this outfit. I snapped it from Streethuband it’s such a nice addition. It’s made of rubber so it’s easy to slip it onto your wrist, there’s no messing around with a strap and no catching your hair in the links. The faces are designed to pop right out and are interchangeable with different colour straps. This is such a genius idea so it is able to go with any outfit you wear. I love the clean clock-face and the way there are no distractions when looking at it. It’s a little difficult in the same way that it’s not clear what the actual time is, but it’s simple enough to get used to! I’ve pretty much worn it every day since it got posted through my door and I don’t intend to take it off anytime soon.

As soon as I set eyes on Paris in Cuffs, I realised I had fallen in love and it was a brand I really wanted to connect to. I was lucky enough to be receive a good bag of things from them, including a tee, a tote bag & some uber cool badges. (They are pinned to my jacket.)

I decided to wear the white tee with my shirt because it added a cool pattern to the look. I am loving checks at the moment and I definitely need a red shirt to give a bold colour statement to the outfit.
I chose my ripped jeans (which I did by myself I’ll have you know) because they are my baby at the moment. I wear them with everything and especially with this outfit it gives a grungy kind of edge to the look.
And my snapback. It has become something that I adore at the moment and sometimes can’t leave the house without it.
Let me know what you think and certainly check out Paris in Cuffs – they’re an awesome brand with even cooler people.
As it’s December (finally) and Christmas season has been thrown down our throats, I got into the spirit of things by showing off my new festive jumper.
I was contacted by the guys over at Jacamo who were lovely enough to give me a choice of two jumpers (one for me and one for my best friend.)
Jacamo are usually thought of as the “bigger guys” brand, but they have decided to completely re-invite themselves to appeal to every man. A great choice in my opinion because I absolutely adore some of their stuff, especially the jumpers.
I opted for the red stag design as I thought it would be suitable to wear throughout the year, not just for Christmas (but I will probably wear it on Christmas Day!)
Their selection ranges from novelty to classic, creating a look for everyone. Whether you need a jumper for Christmas Jumper Day on the 12th of December or simply something to wear on the morn of the 25th when you’re unwrapping your presents and stuffing your face with turkey, then look no further.
